  1. Thanks for the responses. Mr.Awesome Yeah I mentioned that in the OP that the caps aren't watercooled and just have a cutout in the acrylic. I'll look into getting a backplate as even though it won't touch that area, it might help spread the heat over a larger area resulting in lower temps.
  2. Oh nice. Yeah I'm don't have any airflow in my case since it is all under water and has 2 - 480 radiators. One is in the basement of my 900D, separated by a black piece of acrylic and the other is mounted to the top of the case, blowing air out. I'll have to find a solution that won't ruin the simplicity. Also of note, I used to be big into the overclock forums. I posted this issue there and only got 1 response within 4 days and I kept bumping it. Looks like I found a new home here. Thanks gents.
  3. Haha yeah I have 3 cats and 2 dogs so I have a lot of dandruff floating around. It is really hard to stay on top of it. Airdino, yeah I'm not sure what that is on the "pb". It doesn't look like any traces are on that logo.
  4. Thanks a lot for the replies everyone! Really cool rig you got there Mick. Thanks for checking your temps. Airdeno, that is very interesting about the temperatures. I didn't think PCB could handle those kind of temperatures. I'm tempted to open a problem ticket with Nvidia to see what they say and if they have any specifications. For now, I put a little spot fan on that back of the card and the temps went down 100F to the 130F range. I'll need to find a permanent solution that doesn't look ridiculous! Look at what I saw last night. I got real close and took a picture. Does that look like burn marks?! I have some PCB cleaner spray I'm going to use, just have to find it among my 10 bins of PC stuff lol.
  5. So this is really strange. I accidentally touched the back of my PCB after gaming and it was WAY too hot to touch. I took my thermal gun out and found that it is getting up to 231F near the middle edge of the card where the power goes in. Right where the power goes in is 187F. The back of the GPU is at 114.5F. I've had an EK waterblock on it for about 6 months without any issues. The temps stay in a great range. My core temps never go above 33C while gaming and it is overclocked to 1500mhz on the core. I don't think a backplate would help as the temps around the PCB look great. It is just near where the power delivery is. I have 2 - 480 radiators in a Corsair 900D. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! This is a picture of my card without the heatsink. I see some caps there. I highlighted the area on the right side where that 225-231F readings are coming from. Also, here is the waterblock I'm currently using. It isn't supposed to connect to that section of the video card as you can see there are cutouts to make room for the caps.
  6. That is one amazing projector! LG is great!
